The Aria’s towers and ceilings are constructed with a lightweight aluminum alloy frame and resonant acoustical panels, which all fit together to create an acoustically sound enclosure for any space.
• Standard towers are 8 feet wide, and are offered in 16 foot (4.9 m), 17 foot (5.2 m), 18 foot (5.5 m), 19 foot (5.8 m) and 20 foot (6.1 m) heights. Included counterweights offer significant stability. (Custom tower heights are available upon request.)


The Aria is designed for easy setup and takedown to accommodate spaces that demand flexibility. The system comes standard with casters that lock into place to ensure safe, sturdy transport and movement. The intuitive design allows operators to readily reconfigure or move the shell within minutes by inserting a T-handle into the base of each tower.


• The standard acoustical panel construction consists of a laminated composite honeycomb panel:
o 3/16 inch (5 mm) MDF top and bottom skins laminated to 1 inch (25 mm) phenolic impregnated honeycomb core
o Integral extruded aluminum edging
• Panels are offered in a standard 10 foot (3 m) radius.
